Manu Crescent Private Kindergarten was established in 1992 to cater for the learning needs of small children within a small group size. ┬áThe founding principles are still with us today making Manu Kindergarten a true ‘children’s garden’. ┬áThe guiding principles are as follows:

  1. A small group which gives the teachers the ability to individualise the programme.
  2. The opportunity for children to be involved in a natural environment.
  3. Children and staff have flexibility within the centres programme.
  4. Flexibility of time management, rather than adult routines dictating how the children play.
  5. Children have ownership and take responsibility for the environment and know where to gather additional resources for their learning.
